Hors Satan Reviews

Ray Pride

Dumont's final feature with the late Dewaele is as hypnotic as their collaboration in "Hadewijch," another lucid hallucination splendid with sex, demons and landscapes that could have been painted centuries ago.

I find the movie mind-blowing, though it will likely alienate as many viewers as it impresses.

God works in strange ways, especially when Bruno Dumont directs him. Or is that the devil?

The ambiguity of the episodic story with its sparse dialog, combined with the visually stunning landscape photography, makes "Hors Satan" a compelling, if overly long, composition.

"Hors Satan" could be grouped with Carlos Reygadas' "Silent Light" (itself based on Dreyer's "Ordet") and the films of Robert Bresson, but his minimalism makes his meaning more elusive, inviting less emotion than those filmmakers.

Controversial yet meditative French drama makes inscrutability its raison d'etre.

Maddening, pretentious, hypnotic and transcendent in roughly equal measure.

Hors Satan is stark, strange and uncompromisingly personal. It's also vivid and unforgettable.

Dumont's rigorous, serious attention to the mysteries of good, evil, and faith rewards those willing to be confounded.

Ultimately less an arty provocation than a secular invocation, Outside Satan seems almost helplessly exploratory, an honest account of groping for grace.

Provocative French filmmaker Dumont pushes boundaries even further with an astonishing approach to the Christian narrative (the title translates as Outside Satan), mixing the sacred and profane to shake up audiences and get us thinking.

Bruno Dumont's employment of his bucolic French backdrop here attends to Hors Satan's muddying spiritual ambiguity.

The film develops a powerful hold on the watcher as it progresses. But beware, it takes you on the weirdest of metaphysical journeys.

To paraphrase Shakespeare, madness in gifted ones, or eccentricity at once errant and forthright, must not unwatched go.

Bruno Dumont's film-making is just so fluent, unnerving, gripping; he is entirely unique.

Dumont's picture, as frustrating as it is profound, elicits the unease which passeth all understanding.

Intriguingly directed and strikingly shot, this is a typically provocative drama from Bruno Dumont with superb performances from David Dewaele and Alexandra Lematre.
